Lamson reels have infinite potential. A legend continually in the making, the Litespeed is one of the most popular and influential fly reels of the last two decades. One of the world’s lightest full drag reels—infinitely durable—the Litespeed 5 is engineering alchemy.
In this new version, you get: A higher retrieve rate. An improved ergonomic drag knob for better grip. Plus a stronger, more structurally-sound frame and narrower spool for improved line handling. The drag housing is also integrated into the frame to save weight and decrease overall width.
The Litespeed 5 is coated in a new corrosion resistant shield called Micralox—exclusive to Waterworks-Lamson in the fly-fishing realm. Beyond amazing.
LSF – The LSF is the freshwater version of the new Litespeed. The chassis is based on the conical system found in our other reels with the addition of a click stop drag knob and a unique spring set that creates a linear progression of torque with very fine resolution at the light end of its range. LSF spool and frame architecture is super-arbor in scale for high retrieve, but spare and open to promote line drying and, of course, reduce weight.
